      A friend of mine made one of those when he realized he'd run his christmas lights in the wrong direction (ran the female end toward the plug-in). I asked him the other day if he'd snipped it off yet - he had, thankfully.

        my father in law made one like that to backfeed a generator to the cottage (with the main power shut off) during the big blackout way back in 2004?

        Yeah.... gotta be careful with those... His was short, more like a gender changer than a cord.

          That cord has been around for a long time. I wonder if the tape is covering notches in the jacket for each person killed. LMAO

            I remember a great thread here a couple years ago where a guy posted looking for some help in making one of these cords, because he thought it was the only way to get power to the light on a bathroom mirror unit he had hung. Everyone got into such a lather telling him not to make the cord, that like 20 responses went by before anyone thought to question the premise: why on earth would you need a cord like that to power the light on a bathroom mirror unit? "well because" the guy responded, "there's a light on it, and the only power-input I can find is this female plug on the bottom of the unit." "dude!" someone responded, "that's not the power in -- that's the shaver plug!"

                You guys have it all wrong... That's a mid 50's first generation, vacuum salesman taser. You keep her plugged in at the front foyer, with the other end draped over a coat hook by the door for easy access...

                  Wasn't there just a thread about a sewing machine with this extension cord? Seems to be much too common.
